Default Fatboy Lo with ABS riser question

I want to put the 4 in pullback risers on my 2011 Fatboy Lo with ABS. I have done a search and found that with the 4 inch risers I will not have to worry about changing out any cables. So far so good as I understand it. Now my question is this, is this info still correct when it comes to my bike with the ABS?

Also I plan on changing out the bushings to the poly one's as recommended. Thanks for any advice.

I can't see why the ABS would make a difference? With the 4" risers, you're only going to get about 1" of pullback out them so you should be fine. If you're needing more pullback, you may want to save your money and just go straight to some bars with more now. My Wild1Chubby bars gave me 14.5" of pullback and I couldn't be happier. Congrats on the bike...I wish I could have gotten the ABS, but with or without it...the LO is one sweet ride!

Main reason for the risers is to get my mirrors up a bit higher. I have the Moco 2" risers and they work great but I plan on some after market mirrors and the adapters will then look like crap.
